The National Security Archive has been around for many years, and has no
connection (insofar as I know or suspect) with the NSA. They have regularly
supplied talking heads to various talk shows, especially six years ago
during the Gulf War.
(In fact, they have a leftist bias.)
We got computers, we're tapping phone lines, I know that that ain't allowed.
